Californians: Health Insurance Help is Here!

searching-computer-helpResources from Consumers Union & Consumer Reports

Health insurance is a difficult purchase for most people.  While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has made things much better, there’s still plenty of confusion.  We’ve created California-specific tools and fact sheets to help consumers shopping for and using insurance from California’s health insurance marketplace, Covered California.

Many of these resources are backed by thorough consumer testing to ensure they truly help consumers get the answers they need. Almost all are available in English and Spanish.
